I just never get over the build up with Jerry raging away in that one...8-6-71; it really has never been topped. His tone, speed, clarity--for all the songs they have ever done, I almost put this one above every smoking Eleven, almost right there with my all time favorite for energetic guitar work on the OOne from 12-29-68.

HtH is not one of my early era jam songs, like the suites I am always rambling about (like the one I just mentioned for the uptinth time), but what the reach in the peak of this one is just outstanding. I compare every HtH to it, always holding my breath to see how far they take it, and I have YET to find one that matches it.

Just my take--the Aud (crowd response!) makes it all the better!
